West Brom won't be rushed into summer signings
West Bromwich Albion sporting and technical director Dan Ashworth insists the newly-promoted Premier League club will not make any panic buys over the remainder of the summer.
Albion have so far signed Pablo Ibanez and Steven Reid - both on free transfers - plus Gabriel Tamas in a £800,000 deal.
Ashworth revealed the Baggies have several more targets on the horizon but will not sign players of insufficient quality.
He said: "We've got feelers and inquiries out on several different targets. There are conversations ongoing. If one of our top targets comes up and the deal is do-able, then we will do it.
"But we won't jump in for number six on our list for the sake of bringing in a player. We would be wise in holding onto get the right player."
Ashworth also admitted West Brom will look to make use of loan deals to help strengthen the squad which gained promotion from the Championship.
The Baggies have been linked with signing Liverpool striker David N'Gog on a temporary basis and Ashworth added: "The loan market is something we want to exploit.
"You maybe fill your squad and, once you have your main targets, you get a loan player in to fill a key position, perhaps.
"The chairman has alluded to it already, that for a loan signing, a Bosman, or a relatively low transfer fee, we can then bring in a player on higher wages."
Meanwhile, West Brom have have rejected a third offer from West Ham for midfielder Graham Dorrans as chairman Jeremy Peace again stressed the player is not for sale.
West Ham upped their bid for the Scotland international to £5million but Peace has told the Hammers they are wasting their time.
The Baggies have no plans to sell 23-year-old Dorrans, who signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract inn January.
Peace said: "Details of a third bid from West Ham for Graham Dorrans have been leaked to the media.
"This offer is completely unwelcome and, like West Ham's previous two bids, it has been rejected out of hand.
"I have personally told West Ham they are wasting their time. Graham is not for sale - to West Ham or any other club. I cannot make myself any clearer on this subject.
"As far as we are concerned, that is the end of the matter."
Peace added: "As ever, Graham is being a consummate professional and getting on with his pre-season training.
"We are now looking forward to seeing him play an integral part for the club in the Barclays Premier League next season."
* West Brom have confirmed on their website that they are in talks with Villarreal over the possible transfer of midfielder Borja Valero away from The Hawthorns. Valero has been given permission to train with the Spanish club and undergo a medical while discussions continue.
